Change Your Attitude!
Change Your Attitude! is something I have wanted to scream from the rooftops lately. I have spoken to all forms of people in my life late about various subjects. From co-workers to students to friends to parents to just people on Facebook, I noticed a simple thing about many. A lot of the people where quick to vent about their problems, believing there was no end in sight. In addition, there was a common belief that people were stuck in this negative cycle. Furthermore, there was anger in their voice and their voice level was raised.
There is a solution
One of my favorite motivational speakers, Jim Rohn, used to have a saying “If you don’t like where you are, change it! You’re not a tree!”. So many people are quick to judge people who try to stay positive or post positive quotes on social media. People who believe in the power of positivity are labeled at times as “phony”. But it is a mindset. So many problems of the people I listened to could be changed with a simple attitude adjustment. Just looking at the same problem in a different, positive manner can make a different in your demeanor, how others see you, and how often others want to be in your presence.
I have a challenge for you. Try 1 week without complaining about anything, just be grateful from what you DO have. If you have a negative friend, stay away from them for that week. Just being around negativity will force you to be negative. Someone complaining to you will allow you to complain back. Remove yourself from situations like that for 1 week and watch your life change for the better. Use the Gary Vee (another excellent motivational speaker) method. Remove 1 negative friend from your life and replace him/her with a positive one. I guarantee you will feel better about yourself.
